Rapidement, je compris que mon mental s’activait à résoudre l’urgence et ! qu’injonction faite à cet état, il ne fallait pas fléchir – 2021 – Performance, Zebra 3, Bordeaux – At the end of September 2021, a hut, after having rested 2 months on the bank of the Garonne, was brought to be burned, as close as possible to the river in Bordeaux. This fire, reactivates one of the huts made during the solo exhibition, « la redite en somme, ne s’amuse pas de sa répétition singulière » at the Palais de Tokyo in 2016. Its flames, its ashes, finally this performance, echo the paradigms of the forests of Douglas plantations of Morvan – whose soils are depleted, consequence of the cultivation of trees by the timber industry. Indeed, the Douglas fir used to build the cabin comes from one of these forests. The Douglas is essentially produced for its mechanical properties and its fast growth. This makes it one of the first chosen for the wood industry. The burning of the cabin will be both an outlet and a radical operation of destruction of a human building by the element « fire ». This performance, burning a work of art, but also a precarious habitat like the hut, highlights: the mega-fires that spread, and the non-perennial status of a work of art, therefore human, in front of the long time of nature. However, his ashes and debris collected will be the elements of an installation in an upcoming exhibition. The ashes and the capture of this fire, which will become a film, will symbolize the ritual resurrection of a work of art and of the « forest ». In this way, this fire is resolutely optimistic.
